Happy Independence Day! As you celebrate today with your friends and families today, remember the sacrifice of those who gave us this freedom and those who continually defend us. I'm enjoying a long weekend off with my husband today, but I wanted to share a family favorite. Just in case you forgot to make something to bring to the barbecue, here's a quick and portable recipe for you.
You will need:
1-1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla
9 cups Chex cereal
1. Measure cereal into a large bowl (preferably with a cover) and set aside.
2. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine chocolate chips, peanut butter, and margarine. Microwave on high for 1 minute. Stir and microwave for another 30 seconds, until mixture is smooth. Stir in vanilla.
3. Pour chocolate mixture over cereal and stir to coat thoroughly.
4. Pour about 1 cup of powdered sugar on top of coated cereal. Put the cover on the bowl and shake to coat. Add as much powdered sugar as you need to cover the cereal. Store in an airtight container.
